    Sounds kind of narrow minded to me, and convenient, to so restrict your focus as to avoid comparing what you referred to as "due process" for those entering your country illegally to the lack of "due process" for those your President murders indescriminately using drones.

    I am a firm believer in judging events and actions on their own merits. If I judge an action based on another action that is a little alike, but a lot different, I will likely end up making the wrong judgement. There are plenty of places to bitch about Obama, but he is irrelevant to this thread. What you are doing is trying to insert it into this thread to divert away from the topic. Also, oddly, despite your claim that liberals like to bitch about Texas, I am actually praising Texas for making the right decision. You are letting your ideological partisanship form a set of preconceived notions that have no bearing in reality.

    Let's see, the truck was fleeing at unsafe speeds, there was a tarp covering the bed. The Troopers thought there was drugs in the bed of the truck and did not intentionally target the people in the bed. It's easy to sit back and criticize the Troopers decision but there's some nasty **** that goes on on the border from the drug cartels. I guess from now on, when a fleeing vehicle is getting close to a highly populated area, troopers and law enforcement shouldn't make any attempt to stop them?

    I didn't originally bring up Obama - I simply asked your view on the use of drones to murder without due process and you shut down because you don't want to criticize your hero - I'll accept that - what I won't accept is the duplicity of claiming Texas troopers shooting from helicopters at illegals entering your country is "bad" because the illegals aren't given "due process" but somehow, the lack of "due process" given both Americans and other nationals when murdering them using unmanned drones is not an equivalent, just a partisan shot not on topic. And don't try to claim you're "praising" Texas for making the right decision when you fail to condemn the equivalent use of drones elsewhere.

    Re: Texas bans shooting immigrants from helicopters

    My problem with shooting illegal immigrants is the same as shooting anyone who does not represent a threat to others. AlQuida leaders are dangerous people planning to kill Americans (and maybe Canadians) and can be taken out with minimal risk to American ground troops by using a drone. Good shooting Obama. Shooting unarmed guys in the back of a pick up truck is just poor form. There is a bit of a difference.

Slamming Texas is a great American liberal passtime but challenging a liberal President is impossible. It really is interesting watching an Obama supporter twist out of shape trying not to say anything bad about their hero.
